Lipomas, unlike adults, are infrequent in children. Lipomas are en children are associated to  some syndromes. It is more common to find deep hemangioma lipoid degeneration, lipoblastomas or lipofibromas that lipomas. Sarcomas are rare but exist in childhood. One way to study them is with the images (magnetic resonance imaging), but when faced with a tumor of uncertain characteristics, it is always better to remove it and wait for the biopsy, to know what we are dealing with.

Dermoid Cyst / Eyebrow Tail Cyst

It is a frequent tumor in childhood and is due to a collection of germ epithelium. It grows slowly and can corrode the skull bone on which it rest if time passes. It doesn't dissolve and must be removed with surgery.


Pilomatrixoma is a benign tumor that grows slowly, but must be removed because it does not disappear. It can become infected. It is characterized by being just below the skin, being hard and irregular.

Synovial or articular cysts

They are less common than in adults, but children may have these joint-related cysts. In the photo shows cysts in relation to the knee joint

Trichdermal cyst

It is a cyst or tumor of the scalp that grows slowly but does not dissolve. They must be removed and sent to a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.


This tumors generally appear in children with neurofibromatosis type 1. Neurofibromatosis is characterized by having café au lait spots on the skin and under the skin tumors of different sizes may appear in relation to the nerves. If it grows and produced pain, it must be removed.

Epidermal Cysts

it is more frequent in adult patients, but can be seen in adolescents. They are keratin cysts and do not go away

Vascular lesions

Lymphatic malformations, venous malformations, or deep hemangiomas may present as a mass. It is important to make the difference with nuclear magnetic resonance, since they have different treatments.

Dermatofibroid tumors

Dermatofibroid tumors are benign tumors that appear in young women on the extremities. They are round, red or brown lesions that appear after a insect bite or folliculitis,
